The Avre is a river in Picardie and is the principal tributary, from the left side, of the Somme. At 66 kilometres long, it drains a relatively important basin of 1,150 km² but only flows at best 5,1 m³/s near its confluence at Longueau.[1]
Its principal tributaries are: the Noye, joining at Boves, the Trois Doms joining at Pierrepont-sur-Avre, the Brache joining at Braches and the Luce at Berteaucourt-les-Thennes.
